Taking Delivery

Taking Delivery

Taking delivery of your new Tesla is a quick and easy experience. With Tesla Tutorial videos available right on your touchscreen, you can learn about the features and functions of your Tesla from the driver’s seat.

After placing your order, sign in to your Tesla Account to complete the required delivery tasks and prepare for delivery. The latest updates on delivery timing, VIN assignment and appointment details will be available in your Tesla Account.

Depending on location and eligibility, your Tesla will be available for pickup at a delivery center or will be delivered to your location. Please note that delivery dates may change based on many factors including logistics and completion of your pre-delivery tasks.

Tesla Direct

Tesla will deliver your car to an eligible delivery address.

Your Tesla is delivered directly to your provided delivery address. Once your Tesla has arrived, sign any remaining documents and drive away within minutes.

Carrier Direct

Take delivery from an independent carrier.

This fee-based option is available for customers who prefer to have their car delivered, and who live more than 220 miles from the nearest Tesla delivery location. These deliveries are performed by independent carriers for a fee, based on your final delivery location. For faster delivery, we recommend taking delivery at a Tesla delivery location.

Talk to your Tesla Advisor if you would like to add this delivery option to your order. Your delivery date will come directly from the carrier service. Tesla will provide a delivery date, which will be confirmed by the independent carrier once your car is in transit.

Before Shipment

Delivery Day

Note: For Hawaii-outer-island deliveries, we will coordinate shipping to your preferred Hawaiian island through locally-approved shipping companies. The shipping company will deliver your Tesla directly to your island, and will connect with you directly for payment. Prices are set by the shipping provider and may vary.

Prior to receiving your car, we recommend watching the Tesla Tutorial videos and downloading the Tesla app.
